Development of a volume imaging minisodar

Description

The increased use of phased arrays for transmitting and receiving antennae presents an opportunity to develop and use instruments that allow sampling of a true 3-D volume, for studying the planetary boundary layer. By combining a phase array with independent control of each element, with mutlifrequency techniques and with the use of multiple transmitter-receivers, we are developing an instrument that can accomplish this task on a relatively small scale. Because this instrument is an acoustic device, hardware and software control device costs are modest. In its initial configuration, it has three high-frequency 36-element phased-array antennae with individual control over each ... continued below

Description

The increased use of phased arrays for transmitting and receiving antennae presents an opportunity to develop and use instruments that allow sampling of a true 3-D volume, for studying the planetary boundary layer. By combining a phase array with independent control of each element, with mutlifrequency techniques and with the use of multiple transmitter-receivers, we are developing an instrument that can accomplish this task on a relatively small scale. Because this instrument is an acoustic device, hardware and software control device costs are modest. In its initial configuration, it has three high-frequency 36-element phased-array antennae with individual control over each of the array elements. A single antenna is being constructed for proof of concept and design changes. If initial tests are successful, two more antennae will follow, and a 3-antennae system may be in operation before the end of the year. Initial deployment outside of Argonne will be at the Argonne Boundary Layer Facility now being built near Wichita KS, within the Atmospheric Radiation Measurement Program`s Southern Great Plains Cloud and Radiation Testbed site.
